I'm Min Li, and I'm an essayist and technologist. My writing can be found in past or forthcoming issues of The Yale Review, The Point Magazine, BuzzFeed, Triquarterly, and Tin House Online. I live and write in Chicagoland, where I'm a University Fellow at Northwestern University’s Litowitz Creative Writing Graduate Program. My writing has been supported by the BuzzFeed Emerging Writers Fellowship, Tin House Summer Workshop and the Sewanee Writers' Conference.
I'm currently at work on a collection of essays that meditate on art, language, and precarity, refracted through the lens of technology. Previously, I was a product manager in Silicon Valley, where I worked on self-driving cars, cloud computing laptops, web browsers, and technologies for emerging markets. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and hold a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University.
